SURVEY WITH PRIZES: What Are Your Career Fears?

If you know me you know that I am a die-hard optimist.

I see the glass overflowing.

That does not mean that I don’t have fear.

I see fear as a gift. As a guide to being more optimistic and affecting positive change.

As I continue to build my career coaching practice I have been wondering what might keep people in jobs they don’t love, doing work that no longer resonates with them and/or feeling under-appreciated, underpaid or overlooked.

This is the Year to Overcome Fear

I want to better understand your fears so I can put my Optimistic Solution-Finding Magic to work helping you feel great about the work you are doing, what you are being paid and more.

You CANNOT let fear stop you from having a career you love.

That is why I am asking for your insights.


We have created a survey in which we are asking you to rate statements on a FEAR SCALE with 1 being low fear and 5 being high.

We also would love for you to add your own fears to the mix.

And answer a bonus question!


Yes! If you complete the CONFIDENTIAL survey by 12 MIDNIGHT, Central Standard Time, Tuesday 2/6/18 you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win one of three (3) Starbucks electronic gift cards.

DOUBLE STARS BONUS: If you also add some of your own career fears to the survey you will be entered into the drawing twice and have twice the chance to win your favorite Starbucks beverage

TRIPLE STARS BONUS: Additionally, if you complete the Double Stars Bonus AND answer the Triple Stars Bonus question you will have your name entered into the drawing a third time.  Can I get a Pot Odds?

We will announce the winners by first name on Facebook on Wednesday 2/7/18, and notify by email.


If you are ready to leave fear in the dust call me! Let’s talk. I can be reached via email at
